Hi, I'm Maryann and I have been making baskets for 20+ years. I love that they will last for generations if stored and handled with care and yet compost when their active service is done; also that their basic building materials are so readily available, sustainable and plentiful. Baskets are the last remaining technology that can ONLY be made by hand, and so this is a skill I feel honoured to share and maintain.
During Winter Covid times I have limited my teaching to online live classes through a community-led Facebook page called Alberta Natural Baskets. There are events listed within, that still contain the live video recordings for viewing and practicing along at make speed (as opposed to teach speed) . They are all offerred in PayWhatYouCan style with etransfers for your donation accepted at email@example.com
If you would like to learn on a one to one basis through summer, outdoors, please contact me to arrange a suitable project and time.
